    is this one of the benefits? after rooting the atrix i tried mobile hotspot and it works. i did not change anything or add from access points names.

    so this means i'm not touching my 2GB data?


    thanks!

    As I understand the tethering, connecting a device will still utilize your data plan so any downloading, streaming, browsing etc. will use data from your plan.

    When you turn your phone into a HOTSPOT, any device that connects to it is using your 2GB data plan through your phone.

    Just like when you connect your laptop to a wireless router, you are using the internet connection that router is connected to. When you connect your laptop to the hotspot hosted by your phone, your phone is the router and your laptop is using the phones internet connection/data.

    Is it possible to establish a infrastructure network or is it limited to adhoc. I know the evo could do both.

    FYI to anyone tethering without the tethering plan:
